Technical tales series for younger and older readers show the principle behind engines, clutches and many other things besides.
Not all our favourite stories are about princesses, dragons and lovestruck princes. What if the heroes were a rat, a sparrow and a handy frog? And what if those three didn’t set anyone free, get into any fights, or claim a reward of half a kingdom with a young princess thrown in? What if, quite simply, they built an aeroplane, a car, a house, a motorcycle and a railway? The amusing, highly popular story of the three friends of the ‘Technical Tales’ series proves that stories for children don’t have to wear a crown. With these books, young readers will laugh, enjoy Martin Sodomka’s delightful illustrations and learn all they need to know about how certain things are built.
